What IS the Cure Corridor, anyway?

The Cure Corridor is not only a location but a concept designed to promote the innovative activities occurring around the concentration of healthcare and bio-life science industries along  Shea Blvd. and north to south along Scottsdale Road from the Scottsdale Airpark to SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center. Companies like TD2, HonorHealth Research Institute, Mayo Clinic and more regularly speak about their excitement in being integral parts of the cluster.

“HonorHealth Shea Medical Center campus, with its Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center, HonorHealth Research Institute, peripheral stem cell (bone marrow) transplant institute and other programs, is becoming the epicenter of research activity across the HonorHealth Network. We are creating an infrastructure that continues to attract top talent to our organization and the city of Scottsdale, with an impressive depth of science through diagnostic, treatment and genomic research capabilities and stable, high-paying jobs that represent a very important asset to our patients and community. Our city’s residents are fortunate to have world-class care right here in their own back yards. From our outstanding community physicians to nationally-known physician scientists, you don’t need to travel elsewhere for the latest advances in medicine.”
